i want to. but i need to not be a moran with my money from time to time.
funny how somehow this balances in my mind.
1500 jacket and a 2000 suit, yup!
45 tie, nope, gotta save!!!
Well, we can agree that there are ties that are too wide and ties that are too narrow. Probably we can all agree that 4 inches is too wide for the tie blade and 2.75 I am going to venture, too narrow, for ties you would wear with a suit. Then YMMV.
I don't think a 3 inch tie will work well with your formosa: the Formosa looks to have nice wide lapels and given the narrowness of the above tie, the knot will be smaller and the amount of material from the knot also narrower (you can compensate slightly with a DFIH). I like a bit more fullness in the knot and the front blade throughout. It's a small difference, but it does matter to me. Again, YMMV.
But I'd love to be proven wrong: please put on a 3 inch wide tie and wear one of your lovely formosas, jacket unbuttoned.
Of course, with narrower lapels, a narrower tie would be more appropriate.
i have posted many times with my formosa and a drakes or bigi tie, 3 or 3.25 inch ties. looks awesome.
i can find pics if you need.
